Black Rain v1.0
After a nuclear exchange a guerrilla militia fight with the local civilians over control of their bombed out town.


Description
Black Rain is a PVP mission that combines many game modes. At heart it is a TDM game with CTF, AAS, C&H objectives linked to an integrated scoring system. Two teams of 10 bid for control over 6 objectives spread around the map which happens to be a nuclear wasteland strewed with damaged houses, destroyed vehicles, down trees, high grasses, rolling fog and radiated areas. Just sticking your head up will make you paranoid you're in somebody's sights.

Background Story
It take place in a fictional southeastern European country after a World War III nuclear exchange has ensued and the earth has slipped into a nuclear winter. The nations army has fallen into disarray and splintered into many local militias. The two factions involved are a guerrilla militia formed from the remnants of an army and the local civilians. A nuclear warhead has impacted nearby and radiated portions of the area. This areas militia is attempting to gain control of the area after capturing the army's nuclear bunker and war supplies. But the local civilians that have survived are arming themselves and rebelling against the guerrilla militias bid for control.

    -Insurgency like team-mate style spawning system.

    -Band-aid healing system.
    -IED's & shot guns.
    -In game coloring/weather effects.
    -Rolling fog effect.

thanks fox!

a note the PMC is not a requirement, but i think if you don't have it the map textures are low-fi.
it doesn't effect game play though at all.

there are a few fixes that my squad has located, i will be implementing those tomorrow.
my mirror on the E-Z site will be updated and i will make a post.

enjoy!

We've made a lot of progress on this mission over the past week or so.
E-Z's crack team of 3 mission developers has been hard at work updating Black Rain to the ultimate level of playability.
This mission is a revolution in the ARMA2 PVP scene, it's a whole new type of gameplay!
We're also working on a side mission to accompany or even be a part two for this mission. Updates about that soon!

What we've done as of late:
- Completely re-worked the capture areas and integrated scoring system.
- Focused on three main objective area's to help the game play smoother with less folks.
- Added custom point flags.
- Re-worked the spawning system so less bugs occur and base option is always available.
- Added a functioning mutiplayer nuclear explosion in the distance at random intervals to scare the poo out of you.
- Removed various bugs, snags and errors.

More updates to come and our mirror for the updated mission file will be also be coming soon!
Make sure to join us on our server to play Black Rain.
